Our company started through the Agile Scrum transformation. I became the scrum master for my departments development projects. After some coaching and CSM training we began to pilot several smaller projects. We followed all ceremonies and utilized a visual scrum board to manage the project. The pilot went very well. As we started to scale and purchase software to support the growth, we started to review IBM's DAD which eventually led to BMI creating BAM (BMI's Agile Methodology). As the structure started to materialize, i had the opportunity to transfer into our operations department to become a PO.
